Why purchase this Random Date Hungarian Madonna and Child Silver Denar?

The Madonna and Child coin, known as the "Maddonnenmunzen," is one of the most revered designs of all Renaissance coinage, portraying imagery meant to demonstrate Hungarian defiance to the Ottoman Turks during a period of continued conflict with the Ottoman Empire. The coin is one of the earliest European designs to be struck with a date of minting, hand struck by Magyar craftsmen at the Kremnitz Mint, currently the world's oldest operating Mint.

Symbolic Madonna and Child imagery

The obverse features the classically posed crowned Madonna, cradling the child Jesus in her arms, flanked by "K" and "B," the mark of the Kremnitz Mint. Inscribed "PATRONA VNGARIE" (the Patron Saint of Hungary).

The reverse depicts the Hungarian Coat of Arms in a beaded circular frame, surrounded by the inscribed issuing King's name and title, along with the year of minting.

Silver Denar authenticated by NGC

The ancient coin experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) reviewed this Madonna and Child Silver Denar of Hungary, struck circa 1450-1620 A.D. The coin is certified as an authentic silver denar in uncirculated condition, but ungraded due to "Details," referencing hairlines in the coin's surface which prevent the award of a numerical grade. This historic artifact is sealed in a labeled NGC holder and enclosed in a clear story vault case, accompanied by an exciting story card with a historical narrative explaining the inspiration for the coin's design.
